Nutritional needs change with age. Extra attention should be paid to adequate intake of protein, as it helps maintain muscle mass and bone health. The diet of elderly persons must be varied to support well-being and functionality—in other words, to enhance their quality of life. Changes in the sense of taste and smell mean that food products for the elderly need to taste especially good. With Valio’s high protein nutritional ingredients and recipe expertise, you can develop nutritious and delicious food products that support healthy ageing.
Valio’s high-quality lactose free solutions and functional ingredients help you produce delicious, lactose free opportunities for digestive comfort. Stomach problems may increase with older age. Free from properties, like lactose free, could reduce gastro-intestinal discomfort related to lactose sensitive stomachs. Valio Eila® lactose free milk powders help you do that, as they contain less than 0.1% of lactose and no gluten. They also have a high protein and mineral concentration which support good nutrition for healthy ageing.
As we age, we start to lose bone mass and density. Mineral intake is an essential part to sustain bone health as well, with calcium being a crucial building block of bone tissue.
